Four Korean restaurants have been added to Michelin Guide's "Bib Gourmand" listings in Seoul where customers can enjoy "exceptionally good food at moderate prices" -- under W45,000 in the case of Korea (US$1=W1,157).
The 2020 edition contains 60 Bib Gourmand restaurants in the capital.
The price cap has gone up from W35,000 to W45,000 per serving due to rising consumer price. In Europe it is a roughly equivalent 35 euros, in the U.S. the same at $40, and in Japan 5,000 yen.
Six restaurants that were on last year's list dropped out, while four new ones were added, and one slipped from a one-star rating to the Bib Gourmand list.
Two of the new additions are Thai restaurants and the other two sell noodles, and all are popular among trendy young Koreans. Three out of the four new additions only opened last year.
Soi Yeonnam Mao in Sinsa-dong opened in late 2018 and serves Thai food at the lunchtime and tapas with wine at night.
Amazing Thai in Hannam-dong is popular for its food as well as beer and wine.
Tasty Cube in Changcheon-dong in northwestern Seoul is popular among university students and serves Cantonese and Taiwanese food with a Korean twist.
Hyunudon in Nonhyeon-dong is run by chef Park Sang-hyun, who used to work in an udon restaurant in Osaka, Japan.
The unlucky restaurant that lost its star is Jin Jin, a Chinese eatery in Seogyo-dong in northwestern Seoul.
